I've had food delivered twice from this place, and have encountered extremely rude service both times. The first delivery guy couldn't communicate in English, misinterpreted the simple directions I had given him, and yelled at me in Chinese when he finally arrived at my office, as if it was my fault that he couldn't read basic English. The second delivery guy angrily glared at me, silently shaking his head without offering any explanation. Unbelievable. Considering the food is mediocre at best, it is safe to say that I am never ordering takeout from this place again.

We just placed an order and the person who took the order was probably the rudest person I have ever dealt with.. EVER. We had ordered here a few times previously with little issues, but this time around the lady taking the order wanted to charge us extra for side sauces that we had on all previous occasions received for free, and then started yelling at us when we asked her why were they charging us this time when we hadnt had to pay for side sauces before. The food generally is ok for a quick Chinese fix around midtown, but it's not the best Chinese food in midtown.

This competes with any of the chinatown eateries. The fried dumplings are unbelievable and the shrimp and tomatoes over noodles are a gourmet treat. The place is clean, small and noisey ." Ordering in" is marvellous, especially if you have a lot of people dining and can try all the goodies. The price is terrific.

I agreed that the food is not good. You want good Chinese food, go to one of the Chinatowns in Manhatten, Flushing, and 8th Ave. in Brooklyn. The food is loaded with MSG, although they claimed not to use it. I am always thirstry after a meal. Again, people will says it is the best but who are you comparing it to. Price and value is best not this "Americanized" chinese food.

THe food at this place is below average. I've lived in china for several years and I know what good chinese food is supposed to be. this is cheap, so people think that it's great, but it's just a good value. their soups are actually not bad, and they're not inauthetic, it's just like bad street chinese food you'd get in china. their non-soups, however, are deplorable. everything takes the same, and like not much. totally oily. the only reason i go here is b/c my coworkers drag me there sometimes when i'll order the most plain things possible so there's little room for error. Even by new york standards this place is subpar.

This is my favorite chinese place to go to since it is absolutely the best. You get DELICIOUS food at bargain prices with huge portions. Delivery is lightning fast. I love the curry soup they have, the flavor is so distinctly different from any place else. Now that it's colder, i always go in for their soups which i have 9 different noodles to pick from. When i'm not that hungry, I go for dumplings which are all great, i love them fried. House special sesame chicken always a plus! The BBQ stuff you can't go wrong either. They customize the order just the way i like it. Their menu is so large that i try something different all the time and bring my friends in as well. They love this place too. I will be coming in for years to come!

while i love food, i rarely write food reviews. however, after a recent visit to MEE, i was shocked by the generous rating that this dive restaurant received. so here's my two cents: the decor/atmosphere was non-existent, but given the prices, this is somewhat expected. however, what was unforgiveable was the food. i ordered the tofu and vegetable stir-fry which was frightening to look at - everything was drowning in a heavy brown sauce and the tofu was barely recognizeable. my bf had the chow fun with bbq pork. while this dish looked more appetizing than mine, it didn't taste much better. i know some of the other reviewers raved about the bbq pork, but i thought it was probably the worst i've ever had. five minutes into our lunch, we were trying to figure out where we could go afterwards...
